Makerere University has abolished the evening lectures beginning next academic year 2018/2019.
This enhancement is to help to increase graduate numbers thus reduce undergraduates.
Removing evening lectures is done in an effort to turn the university into a research institution .
“All new students starting with the coming Academic year 2018/2019, will be admitted to study various academic programs at the University on either day program from 8am to 5pm or in the afternoon program from 2pm to 6pm. Colleges are however allowed to run evening programs after filling the minimum enrollment on day and afternoon programs,”Barnabus Nawangwe, the Vice Chancellor Makerere said.
All continuing students at the university currently under evening programme will continue with their studies until successful completion. With this in place, the committee is still working and considering a number of issues during this time period including having a revenue sharing model between the center and colleges.
